Divine Message? Mecca’s ‘Grand Mosque’ Plagued by Massive Swarm of Locusts (VIDEOS)

A massive swarm of locusts blanketed Mecca, Saudi Arabia this week which prompted a cleanup crew to come in a remove the pests.

Every year, millions of Muslims make the pilgrimage to Mecca’s ‘Grand Mosque’ which is considered Islam’s holiest site.

The Times of Israel reported that authorities in Mecca said, “Specialized teams have been directed to work in the fight to eliminate these insects.”

CNN identified the locusts as “black grasshoppers” and reported that 138 people were a part of the cleanup crew to deal with the infestation.


Many took to social media to posts pictures of the insect invasion.

In the book of Exodus, in a demonstration of power, God sent swarms of locusts to plague Egypt in order to humble Pharaoh after he refused to free enslaved Israelites.

The locusts swarmed Egypt, darkened the sun, blanketed the ground and destroyed vegetation.

Is this a divine message?
